Description

For a curious boy like Jess Hall, growing up in Marshall means trouble when you get caught spying on grown-ups. Adventurous and precocious, Jess is protective of his older brother, Christopher, a mute whom everyone calls Stump. Though their mother has warned them not to snoop, Stump can't help sneaking a look at something he's not supposed to an act that will have repercussions. It's a wrenching event that thrusts Jess into an adulthood for which he's not prepared. He now knows that a new understanding can bring not only danger and evil but also the possibility of freedom and deliverance.Told by resonant and evocative characters, A Land More Kind Than Home is a haunting tale of courage in the face of cruelty and the power of love to overcome the darkness that lives in us all."show more

Review quote

This novel has great cumulative power. Before I knew it I was grabbed by the ankle and pulled down into a full-blown Greek tragedy. --Gail Godwin, author of "Evensong""show more

Review Text

"Mesmerizing . . . only Jess knows why his autistic older brother died on the very day he was taken into the church, and it's his voice that we carry away from this intensely felt and beautifully told story." New York Times Book Reviewshow more
